Late-Night Host Fallon Skis Butternut

Staff Reports

I'm been spending a week in Great Barrington, MA. Great ... on Twitpic

Breakfast at Joe's

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Late-night NBC talk show host Jimmy Fallon was hitting the slopes at Ski Butternut last week and tweeting about his vacation in the Berkshires.

"Learning to ski at the fiercest and coolest mountain - Butternut," tweeted the "Fever Pitch" star @jimmyfallon. A video taken by his wife, Nancy Juvonen, shows he may need a few more lessons.

The stand-up comedian grew up over the border in Saugerties, N.Y., and started down the entertainment path after winning an impersonation contest at a Poughkeepsie comedy club.

He uploaded pictures of his hash-and-eggs breakfast at the legendary Joe's Diner in Lee, and dropped in at Barrington Brewery (prompting his waitress to tweet back, "thanks for the great tip :).")

Fallon's not the biggest star to enjoy the Berkshires, but he's a pretty funny guy and we're glad he had a good time. Hope he tells all his friends.
